    This guitar will bring a smile on your face every time you pick it up

    By Olivier

    from MD

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    I bought mine used (very slightly, and after reading tons of review about how great it was for the money), it was in excellent shape. It needed a setup out of the box, the action was really high, but once set up properly, it's an absolute JOY to play! It's hard to put down. For the price, it sounds very, very good. The notes are very well detailed, the lows sound great, the highs chime in beautifully, overall it's very well balanced across the whole spectrum... It looks and feel very well constructed, the woods are very nice, the grain very tight. I have no problems with the tuners so far, the guitar holds its tune very well for days (it's in my basement, which is fairly dry (never exceeds 40% humidity) and cool (66F-70F)). It's also very light (of course I'm used to a resonator so I'm biased). I find it very comfortable to play. Sure, the body is fairly big, but the neck itself is pretty comfortable. I'm using it to play some travis picking and while it takes a while to get used to, it feels more and more comfortable. Honestly, for that price, I feel like this guitar has been an excellent introduction to the world of 12-strings, and with the quality of the build and of its sound, I feel like it will take a very long time before the fun wears off. Right now, every time I play it I start grinning...

    You Get Way More Sound Than You Pay For

    By Jeremiah Tabor

    from Mount Shasta, CA

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    If you are on a budget, this is the perfect 12-string. I've played better 12-strings but they were 4 times the money and not much better sounding, or not in production anymore. This is perfect for playing at home. The actions is smooth and the sound is well rounded. I've had mine for several years and nothing has changed. Its solidly made (in Taiwan). The only thing to keep in mind is the nut with. At 1 13/16" wide, the nut makes the neck a little on the narrow side for a 12-string. This was not a deal breaker for me, but I due prefer a wide neck on a 12 string. This narrow nut width is great for smaller hands and shorter/thinner fingers. Overall, it's an excellent guitar and at well under $500 its worth it. You save enough money that there is no excuse not to buy a Hardshell case for it. Buy one, and protect your instrument.

    Yamaha is the blue collar Martin!

    By Gary Moore

    from Desert Hot Springs, CA

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    This is a remake of a guitar I owned in 1971. Just bought this one and it's identical, top to bottom, front to back. The sound is rich and deep, just like my first one. Fingering was incredibly easy right out of the box. Yamaha simply makes the best guitar for the money. Just play one at Guitar Center next time and you'll be amazed. THEN look at the price!

    Definite keeper!

    By Marc Lewis

    from Joppatown md

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    I am totally impressed with the price/value of this piece. If you are looking for a 12 string to add to you collection, this is the way to go for sure. I have read the reviews and I would recommend not worrying about the lack of electric. Just get yourself a DM pop in Pro Mag like 44 bucks last time I checked and your ready to roll! As a matter of fact I was a bit disappointed that the salesman didn't recommend this from the tart and I had to figure it out on my own but, now I know and now you know so go get you one and have a blast because that combo will blow you away!

    Sounds like a flock of sparrows

    By Ian McRae

    from New York, NY

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    It's a wonderful guitar (after 4 weeks). Beautiful, rich sound. Very playable for a 12 string. I prefer the sound over every 12 string I played under $900. It's an incredible deal at $330.

    Is there a better 12 string? No.

    By BRYAN PAEPKE

    from Merrimack NH

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    I've been playing guitar for about 15 years. I own a 2002 Martin D35 and a knock around Washburn WD-12S. I bought this Yamaha FG720S the moment I saw the coupon come in my email. This guitar SINGS! It has tremedous low end and crisp highs. You can't go wrong with this one. No, it's not a $2000 Taylor 12 string or anything... it's not going to solve world hunger either. But, I don't think you can go wrong at this price. I love it!

    beautiful.....

    By Jacob Brown

    from ohio

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    I've never had such an amazing sound come out of a guitar. If you want a beautiful sounding and looking guitar get this. don't think about it. if you have any money just get it. I promise you won't be disappointed. the neck is seriously smooth and fast. and I can't stress to you how beautiful the sounds from this guitar are with the right strings.

    Very nice

    By DenisVolga

    from Somewhere over the Rainbow

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    Always wanted to have a 12string guitar to play some "Travis" (FranHealy) stuff, some Russian stuff (AlexandrRozenbaum) and, of course, how can we miss it, "Wish you were here". Then, despite of money issue, I went of the hook, made a decision right on the spot and bought this Yamaha FG720S-12. There are many very nice Y. guitars that are not expensive (comparatively) but sounding very good and they are very durable. Roughly saying the sound is between Taylor and Alvarez). Personally, I like the well-rounded neck, just very comfy. Yes, there are other good 12string models like Seagull (don't like much personally the feeling and looks of their 6 strings, but the sound is nice, deep and juicy),Epiphone, Fender,...Know nothing about Ibanez somehow. But knowing Yamaha reputation and having Yamaha FGX720SCA at home (amongst others...a small nice 'company'), I know that this guitar will keep in tune, the natural brightness of Yamaha just fits the 12 string version, it is comfortable, it looks just beautiful and, yes, the price is good enough for the thing. Very often one doesn't have to go too far (pricewise)to make a nice music and Yamaha gives us a good choice . When I play this one, I feel it with my guts and heart, physically. That's a good sign. After all - it's how and what you play. And this model would be good, i guess, for anyone, ..unless one is picky and interested more in brand or price than in music itself.

    yamaha quality

    By Jack Long

    from Tucson Arizona

    Comments about Yamaha FG720S 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    I just want to say i have been playing yamaha acoustics for many years. Have always wanted a twelve string. Have played fenders ,ovations, richenbachers, and yamahas. This guitar is quality built. Is easy to play stays in tune, and the sound is awesome. Never bought a guitar unless i have played it first. Took a chance buying online, and was surprised. Whoever made this guitar did a fine job, it will ring out the sounds that are in my heart and soul for many years.Thank you yamaha for an affordable twelve string.
